Sucked into family, sucked in to work, sucked in to this sweater. OMG, I'm sucked into my life!
This sweater is poking a long. It doesn't look like I've made much progress, but I've knit half the gusset, and have a few inches on the front or back whichever it turns out to be. Sorry for the dark picture. It is a dark yarn. The wonderful Ms. Lolly of Socktober fame collects pomegranates and, surprise, I collect acorns and Totoros. So I will take this moment in the craft void to display a few! They make me happy!
I'm stumped on what yarn to use for the Twosheeps DNA scarf. I want to be able to the feel the yarn before I buy it, and so far the Internet has let me down on that one. I have an intended recipient in mind and I think luxurious is the way to go, but the yarn has to be able to show up the incredible design.
I am enamored with The Giving Flower's and helloyarn's mittens. I have a lovely red DK wool in red, but only black or green to contrast. Sigh, I suffer from stash deficiency syndrome (closet full of yarn, just not the right fiber/feel/color or gauge).
I was kind of burned out on the idea of traveling, but, the yarn supplies here are scarce. Perhaps in the fall :) I am saving up those points now!
